The company Agustson a/s from Denmark has launched a recall for several fish products. The reason for this measure: a dangerous pathogen was detected in the articles. The goods in question were sold at Lidl and other supermarket chains.
According to various letters published by the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) on its “lebensmittelwarning.de” portal, the Danish manufacturer Agustson a/s is recalling various fish products because listeria has been detected in them.
Listeria monocytogenes detected
Lidl announces in customer information that the product “Nautica Rainbow Trout Fillets, 125g” in the two sorts “Natural” and “Pepper” and the product “XXL Nautica Rainbow Trout Fillets Natural, 140g” each with all consumption dates up to and including October 5th, 2023 and the identity code DK 4566 EG can be recalled.
Listeria monocytogenes, a dangerous pathogen, was detected in the affected products. Due to this health risk, customers should definitely pay attention to the recall and not consume the products.
The affected products were sold at Lidl in Central Europe. The goods can be returned to all Lidl branches. The purchase price will be refunded, even without presentation of the receipt.
Recalls also at Kaufland and Globus
Globus also reports in an information about the recall of a fish product. The item affected here is “Globus Rainbow Trout Fillets Natural, 125g”, shelf life: September 8th, 2023 – October 5th, 2023, identification code: DK 4566 EG.
And at Kaufland, according to a press release, the products “Finest Seafood smoked rainbow trout fillets natural 125g without skin” and “Finest Seafood smoked rainbow trout fillets pepper 125g without skin” with all best-before dates up to and including September 27th, 2023 and the lot identifiers L23233, L23234 , L23235, L23235, L23236, L23240, L23241, L23242, L23243, L23244, L23247, L23248, L23249, L23250 and L23251 recalled.
Danger for certain risk groups
As explained in a letter, according to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Listeria disease usually manifests itself within 14 days of infection with diarrhea and fever.
Pregnant women, seniors and people with weakened immune systems in particular can develop serious illnesses such as blood poisoning and meningitis.
In pregnant women, even without symptoms, the unborn child can be harmed. People who have eaten an affected food and develop severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical attention and report a possible Listeria infection.
Pregnant women who have eaten such a food should seek medical treatment and advice, even if they have no symptoms. However, this does not make sense for other people without symptoms. (ad)
